Obama meets his Watergate tapes: Lerner's missing IRS emails found

Retired IRS partisan hack Lois Lerner won't have much to be thankful for next Thursday.

From the Washington Examiner:
Up to 30,000 missing emails sent by former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner have been recovered by the IRS inspector general, five months after they were deemed lost forever.

The U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed congressional staffers from several committees on Friday that the emails were found among hundreds of "disaster recovery tapes" that were used to back up the IRS email system.

"They just said it took them several weeks and some forensic effort to get these emails off these tapes," a congressional aide told the Washington Examiner.

Committees in the House and Senate are seeking the emails, which they believe could show Lerner was working in concert with Obama administration officials to target conservative and Tea Party groups seeking tax-exempt status before the 2012 presidential election.
I never believed these emails were unrecoverable.

Napoleon of course met his Waterloo. Has Obama met his Watergate tapes?

Hat tip to Weasel Zippers.

Don't get too excited. They've had plenty of time to remove anything too imcriminating. It's obvious the rot runs throughout the IRS from the top down.
